In the Middle of the Pacific 

Nestled in the Ko’olau Mountains along the windward coast of Oahu is the Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden. It is in this lush paradise that the US Army Corps of Engineers constructed a flood control dam in 1976 after several devastating water events. The resulting reservoir covers 32 acres and is capable of holding back 10 times the amount of water during periods of flood. These images were submitted by Andre M.
